Blizzard med ny oppdatering på Overwatchs testserver

Genji blir mykje mindre effektiv.

Testserveren til Overwatch er no oppe på PC, der ein kan prøve ut dei komande endringane i sesong to. Gamer.no dekkja informasjonen som kom for nokre dagar sidan om endringane av konkurransemodusen, og no er det kome ei fullstendig liste over alt nytt. Desse vil vere tilgjengelege frå no av på testserveren, slik at spelarane kan prøve dei ut og gi sine tilbakemeldingar. 

Det kan framleis bli mange endringar før oppdateringa rullar ut på dei offisielle serverane, så alt er ikkje sett i stein enno. Ei komplett liste kan du sjå nederst.

Balansering av heltane

Med den nye oppdateringa til testserveren kjem nokre forventa, og ikkje fullt like forventa endringar til heltane. Til dømes skal den nye oppdateringa på testserveren redusere kraftnivået til Genji ganske mykje, ved å blant anna kutte av to sekund på ultimatangrepet hans, fjerne trippelhopp og ta vekk moglegheita for eit kjapt slag i «Swift Strike»-angrepet hans. Utviklarane meiner Genji har for mykje mobilitet og styrke, slik at han må justerast.

Farten frå Lùcios «Amp It Up» skal bli lågare, og «Chain Hook»-ferdigheita til Roadhog skal visstnok bli mindre kranglete. D.Va sitt skjold blir litt mindre effektivt, ved at det ikkje kan slåast av og på like fort. 

Hanzo blir betre med den nye oppdateringa, då han no går raskare mens han har sikta inn, og pilene hans flyr fortare. Ein tidlegare endring som gjorde prosjektilangrep mindre har også blitt reversert, som vil hjelpe heltar som Hanzo og Mei. Sistnemnte får òg litt meir kraft, ved at ultimatangrepet hennar no går igjennom skjold.

Ein tilsynelatande liten, men viktig endring er at teljaren for ultimatangrep no tømmast fortare enn før. Dette vil ha stor innverknad på heltar som McCree og Reaper, som kan behalde store mengder av framgangen på ultimatangrepet sitt viss dei døyr tidleg etter å ha byrja på sjølve angrepet. Denne teljaren går no ned til null på eit kvart sekund, ned frå eit heilt sekund.

Mercy har sett ein nedgang i bruk i det siste, men skal no bli betre igjen. Ho vil med oppdateringa helbrede andre heltar 20 prosent fortare, samt at dei som blir gjenoppliva av ultimatferdigheita hennar ikkje er frosne på ein plass like lenge som før.

Blant dei meir populære helbredarane finn ein Zenyatta, som skal balanserast litt annleis. Prosenten skadeauke frå «Orb of Discord» går ned frå 50 prosent til 30, mens «Orb of Destruction» går frå 40 til 46 skade per treff.

Eín enkelt kartendring er nemnt i testserveroppdateringa. Det fyrste punktet på Watchpoint: Gibraltar har blitt fjerna som fylgje av introdusering av tidssystemet på «Escort»-spelmodusen. Kartet har no tre punkt, som dei andre.
